The stage is set.The ICC Cricket World Cup-the tournament and trophy which every international player hopes to win and which cricket fans dream their country to hold one day-is here. With all the ten nations having named their squads, this book bursts with information about everything you need to know about our Boys in Blue, who are most likely to light up the tournament with their skill and talent. As the teams prepare to join hosts England for cricket's biggest bash and to loosen defending champions Australia's grip on the coveted trophy, veteran sports journalist Vijay Lokapally gives us a peek into India's squad with a twist. In a first of its kind, celebrated former cricketers Kapil Dev, Madan Lal, Sandeep Patil, K. Srikkanth, Yashpal Sharma, Kirti Azad, Balvinder Sandhu, among the players who beat the then invincible West Indies in 1983 to win the Prudential World Cup at Lord's, speak about their counterparts in the current Indian line-up. Views from L. Sivaramakrishnan, Venkatapathy Raju, Kiran More, Robin Singh, Venkatesh Prasad, Manoj Prabhakar, Nayan Mongia and Piyush Chawla, all former World Cup stars, make this a unique and valuable narrative.
